78028 1964-05-08 Ratby Road Crossing near Desford.

On the Leicester West Bridge branch heading for Desford Junction.

This is the level crossing between between Desford Junction & Ratby Station.
If so, the correct railway name is Ratby Road Crossing, (as Desford Lane crossed line on two adjacent crossings).

From Midland Railway mileage chart:-
Desford Junction 0m 00ch
Desford Road Crossing 0m 36ch
Ratby Road Crossing 0m 44ch

The modern building in the distance is the re-built Alexandra Stone Works and the loaded ballast wagons will have come from Groby Quarry, served by a private mineral railway off the West Bridge line.
